  • 4 6-oz. boneless pork chops, trimmed, pounded to 3/4-inch thickness
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks, diced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint

1. Sprinkle chops on both sides with salt. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chops and sear on 1 side until well browned, 3 to 4 minutes.

Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.

2. Add pineapple and 2 Tbsp. water to skillet. Cook, stirring to incorporate browned bits on bottom of skillet, until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir in mint and red pepper. Spoon over chops and serve.
